It’s The Greasers’ Fault The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton, is a book full of realistic conflict, in that it goes against the stereotypical happy ending. The Outsiders is about the Greasers, a teen gang in Oklahoma who are rivals with the Socials, struggling to find their way in life. When Johnny and Ponyboy, two Greasers, get involved in a fight that results in the death of a Soc, they are forced to run away. Throughout the book, the Greasers are forced to overcome the challenges of their gang lifestyle.
In metaphoric terms this means Hardships in life. When Frost uses begin to die in fall he means the hardships start coming. Dally is represented by this part because as soon as Johnny died his life flipped around and started to get hard. “Damnit, Johnny…” he begged , slamming one fist against the wall, hammering it to make it obey his will. “Oh, damnit, Johnny, don’t die, please don't die…” He suddenly bolted through the door and down the hall.This just shows how dependent Dally was on Johnny and his friendship, but now he’s going have to struggle to make it without him in his life\ “So Edan sank to grief.” In literal terms this means All growth is dead.
Johnny killed bob at the park when he and and Bob’s friends tried to down Ponyboy; To save Ponyboy, Johnny had to kill Bob. This shows that the Greasers had to protect themselves from people to stay safe and not die. This is important because the Greasers are forced to make these sacrifices to stay alive. This is how the Greasers are struggling more than the Socs. The Greasers are exposed to violence than the Socs making it hard for them to sustain themselves.
Picture being so scared walking home alone that you had to carry a switchblade around. In The Outsiders Ponyboy, and his friends who are called the greasers, live in a violent, bad neighborhood without their parents. They are against a group called Socs who are a higher class, in a much better neighborhood and they jump the greasers all the time out of nowhere. The setting causes the characters to be tense and anxious, for example, Johnny and Darry who can never calm down and loosen up. They always have to look behind their back everywhere they go.
“I done a real bad thing,” knowing he has done something George would be upset about, Lennie runs away to the place George told him to go if he was in trouble. When George finds him, he knows he has to kill him because he didn’t want anyone else to shoot him or let him live miserably in an asylum. Once he’s gone, so is the dream. The irony is the two men worked so hard yet they never accomplished their dream. Once Lennie is killed, the dream is completely over.
Lennie notices that and it seems to bother him because he doesn’t understand why. On page 12 Lennie realizes George’s frustration and says, “If you don’t want me I can go off in the hills an find a cave. I can go away anytime…” Lennie shows off this sad gesture by saying that he’d leave and wouldn’t be a nuisance to nobody which gives the readers a hint that Lennie is sad and lonely in his life in general so leaving George wouldn’t be a huge transition for him. Lennie always gets himself into trouble. For example on page 91 where it states, “Look out now, you’ll mess it up.” She jerked her head sideways, and Lennie’s fingers closed on her hair and hung on.
George is cruel to Lennie a lot of the time, calling him “a crazy bastard” even though the connotation of “bastard” is astoundingly harsh. George earlier explains how Lennie makes them lose a job when Lennie acts strangely to a girl which frightened the girl and got them both in trouble, even though George was not even there at the time. Lennie tends to get them fired most of the time, so they have a spot that they meet up at, if there is some kind of problem. Lennie is hiding in the spot, the brush, that George told him to go to if he ever gets into trouble, after he accidentally kills Curley’s wife. He knows that what he did is wrong, but he doesn’t know how to fix it, and he thinks that George might be able to fix the problem.
This reveals that Atticus was afraid of the group of men that were going to hang Tom Robinson. After the halloween pageant, Scout and Jem were walking back home when they got attacked by Bob Ewell. “From somewhere near by came scuffling, kicking sounds, sounds of shoes and flesh scraping dirt and roots.” (Lee 351). This scene demonstrates that Bob Ewell attacks Jem and Scout, trying to get revenge. When taking this case Atticus wasn’t aware of the consequences it will bring to him and his family.
Additionally, Darry is going to have to work even harder in his two jobs to keep his family together. Not only him, but everybody in the family is going to have to work harder and help each other out. Instead of Ponyboy moving on from his brother and his friend passing away, he lies to himself about this situation. In fact, according to the text it says, “I always have been kind of absent-minded, but man, then, I was lucky if I got home from school with the right notebooks and with both shoes on.” (169). This really indicates that because of his friend’s death it leads Ponyboy to doing poorly in school and reacting differently.
Rainsford fears him and fears for his safety “Put distance between himself and General Zaroff.” He wants to as far away from Zaroff because he hates him and if he is caught he will be killed. Connell is telling the reader he is kicking into survival gear and getting the heck away from the danger. My claim is proven furthermore when Rainsford is thinking “Something like panic” which shows his instinct. In this passage Rainsford is panicking because his once friend is now trying to kill him. He is afraid of Zaroff and death so he is running in the woods distressed, and panicking.
Crooks, from Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, on the other hand is more annoyed and blocks off everyone. In order to deal with this, Crooks plans to run away, but the speaker in I, too, Sing America says he 'll grow strong no matter what. And I agree
I’ll take it out of you.” (Ch. 5) He continued to go to school because it made pap mad, although he didn’t like it because he preferred to not be civilized. He ran away when pap kidnapped him, partly because he was sick of getting beat and dealing with his dad’s alcoholism, and also for the reason that he just wanted to be free. As you can see, “the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” is a story with a new view on society and what is right/wrong. It was and still is a book that leaves much to be debated on topics such as culture, race, and
